Designed as a shortened-fuselage version of the highly successful A320 design, the A319 was first flown on August 25th, 1995.
Northwest Airlines, Inc. (often abbreviated NWA) was a major United States airline founded in 1926 and absorbed into Delta Air Lines by a merger approved on October 29, 2008, making Delta the largest airline in the world. Northwest continued to operate under its own name and brand until the integration of the carriers was completed on January 31, 2010.
Known as the “big daddy of passenger jets,” the Airbus A319 was first manufactured in France in 1996 and travels at a maximum speed of 514 knots, or 952 kilometers per hour. It is a narrow-bodied, twin-engine commercial passenger plane that carries up to 160 passengers and is a shortened version of the A320 series. The A319 aircraft was developed at the request of the CEO of ILFC, Steven Udvar-Hazy. The A319 is a sleek, attractive airplane that puts passenger comfort and enjoyment above everything else.
The A319 has a shortened fuselage because four fuselage frames were removed in the development of the aircraft. This resulted in a shorter plane by a total of a little over 12 feet. The manufacturer replaced the bulk cargo door with an aft container door, which meant a reduction in the height of LD3-45 containers. There were also minor software changes that resulted in different handling characteristics but other than this, the plane is very similar to its predecessor, the A320.
As of April 2019, the Airbus A319 had received a total of 1486 orders, and 35 orders of the A319neo (new engine option). There is currently a backlog of nine for the A319 and 35 for the A319neo. As of August of 2019, 1,480 total aircraft have been delivered and 1436 of them are now in service.
Another 42 airliners are on firm order with seven A319s and 35 A319neos. To date, American Airlines is the largest recipient of the A319 airplanes, operating roughly 130 of the aircraft so far.
